Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1270593
Foto flash card in card reader shows no fotos
Last modified: 2016-09-24 03:28:25 EDT
Description of problem:
When plug in the flash card (Sandisk Extreme 8GB) into the card slot of my Acer laptop, there is a message "card recognized". When I open the file menue I can see my disks but I can not see the flash card. Naturally "Rapid Foto Downloader" and "Shotwell" do not display or copy fotos. In the same system in F22 the flash card is ok, in F22 Rapid Foto Downloader and Shotwell copies the fotos and displays (It's the same hardware, internal card reader of the laptop, F22 and F23 on seperate external disks)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Kernel 4.2.3-300.Fc23 x86_64
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot F23 Final TC1 Kernel 4.2.3-300.Fc23 x86_64
2. plug in foto flash card
3. look at file menue or start Rapid Foto Downloader or Shotwell
flash card not displayed in file menue
fotos can be downloaded
The same sd card put in the card slot of the Canon scanner-printer (connected via usb to the system) is ok. Possible to handle with Shotwell, Rapid Foto Downloader does still not work (seems to be a problem of Rapid Foto Downloader). The SD card is displayed in the File menue.
Wrong component. Reassigning to kernel.

no eject of flash card in printer-scanner Canon Pixma MP540
F23 Final Desktop TC11 x86_64, Kernel Version: 4.2.3 Release: 300.fc23. Photo Flash Card in Card Reader of printer-scanner Canon Pixma MP540, photos can be read and displayed, but it's not possible to eject the card via F23 file menue display.
just to note: My card reader in the Acer Laptop is a Realtek PCIE card reader.
I also can not display the laptop internal card reader and plugged SD card in lshw. But lshw shows the card reader and pugged SD card of my Canon printer-scanner.
I have just found that this problem of a Realtek Card reader seems to be
more generic in Linux, I found
which talks about rtsx_pci
and rts_bpp. Kernel is really not my area - I am more user, and a little bit
testing. Does anyone know the corresponding modules in F23, because this can be
the answer of my card reader problem
found a redhat bugzilla bug concerning similar data:
my problem:lspci shows:
[ff00]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. Device 5287 (rev 01)"
--> Gnome problem because of Kernel
old fedora bug:
Bug 854762 - rts_bpp: Realtek 5289 SD card reader does not work
Status: CLOSED INSUFFICIENT_DATA
Possibly we can find now sufficient data.
